Is it still considered bonding if the two buns live together without fighting but don't really seem to have a close relationship? My two buns pretty much stay away from each other, especially the female. They seldom eat together and they don't sleep together. I never see them play together or chase each other, but they will clean each other from time to time. From watching them, I'm thinking that it's my female that is a little standoffish. There is never any fighting, at all.
Do you think they will get closer eventually or is this the way they bond?
Joey and Phoebe have been living together for about 2 months and it's my male Joey who is the dominant one. Phoebe will run from him whenever he comes close to her but they've never fought since moving in together.
Thanks for the reassurance.....I'm happy to know that they can live together as long as they don't fight.
